Headless Prototype

This is the first "headless" guitar I built. The design got changed in early 2016 to become my "Alia" model. This is also the first time ever that I put my hands on a multiscale construction, fretboard binding, a chambered body and a soundhole. I'm not too much of a fan of the design anymore, but I learnt a lot when building this instrument.
